All Pigs Must Die Streaming New LP

As the release date of All Pigs Must Die's brand new album "Nothing Violates This Nature" is now upon us, today the brutal LP is now streaming in its entirety courtesy of Revolvermag.com. Give it a listen below. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Combining the talents of musicians hailing from Converge, The Hope Conspiracy, Bloodhorse and more, All Pigs Must Die fuses some of the most straightforward metal/hardcore elements into anthems as instantly infectious as they are incendiary. Recorded by Kurt Ballou and mastered by Brad Boatright.

"From the opening note Nothing Violates This Nature comes alive with the expected All Pigs must Die hatesurge, yet carries the band’s brutal delivery into new realms of dissonant punishment with even more Swedish death metal instilled into their craft.

"The CD and digital versions of Nothing Violates This Nature can be ordered direct from Southern Lord now with the vinyl version to follow in the coming weeks. The three-song 7” single for 'Silencer' is available via APMD’s own Nonbeliever Records, the EP also including another new track from NVTN, 'Sacred Nothing,' as well as an exclusive b-side track, 'Taming The Slaves.'"

All Pigs Must Die Streaming New Song

The public’s first undertaking of the auditory revulsion of All Pigs Must Die’s pending second LP, "Nothing Violates This Nature," happens today as Pitchfork drops the first single from the album. Check out the track "Silencer" at this location. The band's publicist also comments:

"A hateful unification of musicians hailing from Converge, The Hope Conspiracy, Bloodhorse and more, as All Pigs Must Die these assassins fuse some of the most straightforward metal/hardcore elements into anthems as instantly infectious as they are incendiary. Recorded at Godcity with Kurt Ballou (Converge) and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise), from the opening note Nothing Violates This Nature comes alive with the expected All Pigs Must Die hatesurge, yet carries the band’s brutal delivery into new realms of dissonant punishment with even more Swedish death metal instilled into their craft.

"The second track from the album, 'Silencer' aptly delivers two minutes of unholy aggression which showcases all of these traits; a mangled, nightstalking, streetwise cousin of Entombed on an mass-murder bender. The proof is in the lyrics: 'I am among you as hunger grows, the life you're given is mine to hold. See you suffer, watch you die, your tortured ghost has come to this.' To be clear, here is nothing remotely quiet about Silencer."

The "Nothing Violates This Nature" release hits North America on July 23rd via Southern Lord, as with APMD’s debut LP "God Is War." Pre-orders for the new album can be found at this location.

In advance, a three-song 7” single for “Silencer” will be released on the band’s own Nonbeliever Records, the EP also including another new track from NVTN, “Sacred Nothing,” as well as an exclusive b-side track, “Taming The Slaves.” More...

All Pigs Must Die Reveals Album Details

Massachusetts-based All Pigs Must Die this week declares the details for the band's imminently destructive second LP "Nothing Violates This Nature," pending release this Summer via Southern Lord. The following press release was issued about the album:

"After a stretch of silence since the Winter recording sessions of the anticipated follow-up to their enraged 2011-released God Is War, months of planning and plotting on every front of the All Pigs Must Die camp have gone into the creation of this quartet’s newest and most damaging new works yet; a ten-anthem declaration of disdain the band has dubbed Nothing Violates This Nature.

"While holding true to what the band is known for, on the new album APMD has obviously honed some new methods to their attack, merging some more calmly delivered protocols of execution with some of their most oppositely unhinged and violent rampages yet on this album. As with God Is War, the crushing Nothing Violates This Nature was recorded at Godcity with Kurt Ballou (Converge) and mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise), maximizing All Pigs Must Die's deafening aggression, and the appropriately grim packaging illustrated by Aaron Turner (Isis, Old Man Gloom), viewable below.

"A hateful unification of musicians from notable acts The Hope Conspiracy, Converge, Bloodhorse and more, as All Pigs Must Die these assassins fuse some of the most straightforward metal/hardcore elements into anthems as instantly infectious as they are incendiary. Live they’ve stormed venues alongside Integrity, Enabler, Ringworm, Black Breath, Eyehategod, Repulsion, Down, Sleep, Exodus, Church Of Misery and tons of others as part of The Power Of The Riff events, Southern Lord label showcases, Scion Rock Fest, SXSW and more, including a U.S. tour with Narrows. 2013 will see APMD touring in support of Nothing Violates This Nature; stay tuned for updates including new music, live actions, an official street date and more over the coming weeks."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Chaos Arise
2. Silencer
3. Primitive Fear
4. Bloodlines
5. Of Suffering
6. Holy Plague
7. Aqim Siege
8. Sacred Nothing

Lake Bukkake Added To Metal Suckfest

The Metal Suckfest -- the 2-day, 20-band, MetalSucks-curated metal festival being held at NYC's Gramercy Theater on November 4th and 5th -- has made a last minute addition to its Day 1 roster: NYC pornogrind act Lake Bukkake will open the fest, prior to headliners Municipal Waste, God Forbid, Today is the Day, Howl, Black Tusk, and many more. Metalsucks commented:

"After months and months and months of negotiations — and by 'negotiations,' we mean 'us pestering and begging them constantly' — the group has FINALLY agreed to emerge from their shell to play the opening set on Day 1 of The Metal Suckfest, one week from today, Friday, November 4. The band will play both I Left My Heart…and 1996's Shut Up it’s Good for Your Complexion in their entirety. (The combined running time of both albums is less than fifteen minutes.)

"They also PROMISED us to debut at LEAST two songs from Chinese Bukkakacy, which they have, indeed, been working on for awhile (although apparently it may not be called that anymore — 'The idea seemed pretty funny in 2006, not so much anymore,' the band told us by e-mail)."

All Pigs Must Die Debut Album Set For August

Massachusetts' ALL PIGS MUST DIE is preparing to set their debut full-length loose on the public this summer. Entitled "God Is War," the pummeling eight-song record album has officially been set for release on August 16, 2011 via Southern Lord Recordings.

The band's 2010-released self-titled EP was initially released on LP via the band's own Nonbeliever Records, eventually catching the ear of Southern Lord, who almost immediately picked up the album for distribution, and signed the hard-working act for the release of their newly completed "God Is War" full-length.

"God Is War" was recorded and mixed by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at his God City Studio (Black Breath, Nails, Trap Them, Disfear) in December. The cover bears a fittingly dark drawing by famed artist Florian Bertmer, who was also responsible for the artwork on All Pigs Must Die's self-titled EP.

The "God Is War" tracklisting is as follows:

1. Death Dealer
2. Pulverization
3. Sacrosanct
4. God Is War
5. The Blessed Void
6. Third World Genocide
7. Total Extinction
8. Sadistic Vindicator

ALL PIGS MUST DIE contains vocalist Kevin Baker (The Hope Conspiracy), drummer Ben Koller (Converge), guitarist Adam Wentworth (Bloodhorse) and bassist Matt Woods (Bloodhorse). Since uniting in All Pigs Must Die in 2010, the band has toured regionally throughout the U.S., including multiple times at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas, and several Scion-sponsored music showcases including their first West Coast appearance at Los Angeles' The Roxy. All Pigs Must Die will return to the West Coast this August as they are scheduled to play several of the upcoming The Power Of The Riff shows.

Here are the latest ALL PIGS MUST DIE tour dates:

8/13/2011 Echo/Echoplex - Los Angeles, CA @ TPOTR w/ Pentagram, Eyehategod, Winter, Pelican, Trap Them, Black Cobra, more [TICKETS]
8/15/2011 Elbo Room - San Francisco, CA @ TPOTR w/ Winter, Noothgrush, Trap Them, Black Breath, Acephalix [TICKETS]
